Skin resurfacing with Icon™ Cynosure® laser technology at Aurora Bella Plastic Surgery is a nonsurgical aesthetic procedure that uses pulsating beams of light to eliminate damaged surface skin layer by layer. The treatment is great for correcting facial lines and wrinkles and for diminishing skin irregularities, including acne scars, pigmentation, and other flaws. Also called a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing is considered a great treatment for people who want softer, clearer, youthful-looking skin. Depending on the needs of the patient's skin type, the laser can be adjusted for the best results. There is some recovery time required for most laser skin resurfacing procedures. Any concerns or questions may be reviewed during your consultation with Miami, FL plastic surgeon Dr. Bella A. Pacheco.

In today's world where convenience and efficiency are more important than ever, laser skin resurfacing stands out as a high versatile treatment that offers the opportunity to address multiple skin concerns at once with minimal downtime and long-lasting results. Some of the most exciting benefits of choosing laser skin resurfacing at Aurora Bella Plastic Surgery include:

  • Improves signs and symptoms of aging, like lines, wrinkles, and mild skin laxity
  • May slow the skin aging process
  • Can reduce the size of enlarged pores
  • Helps to correct sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone
  • Smooths out rough or patchy skin texture
  • Removes damaged skin cells
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Quick, convenient treatment
  • Minimal downtime

There are many factors to consider when selecting which method of laser skin resurfacing treatment is best for you. Laser skin resurfacing is designed for people who are unsatisfied with their skin's appearance. If you see sun-damaged skin, acne scars, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, or redness issues, this procedure can help address these cosmetic flaws. Also, laser skin resurfacing works effectively if you have scaly patches, rough texture, or other irregularities. Laser skin resurfacing is not suggested if you have very dark skin or active acne. Additionally, it's important to be aware that a recovery period is needed after laser treatments. Certain patients, based on the condition of their skin, may need up to 2 – 3 weeks to recover.

When you are scheduled for a deeper or more intense Icon Cynosure laser resurfacing treatment, you may be asked to use a topical retinoid for 2 – 3 weeks before your laser appointment. This helps prepare the skin for better results. Medication will be suggested before the treatment to help lessen discomfort so you can relax throughout your appointment. If your complexion needs mild improvement, local anesthesia will be applied to numb certain areas where the laser will target. A type of sedation may be used for the full face or deeper laser treatments. During the procedure, you can relax in our special treatment chair while the Icon Cynosure laser handpiece passes over the skin, precisely targeting the needed areas for resurfacing. You may feel heat from the laser, followed by cold air from the system's built-in cooling device. The laser energy removes dead and damaged skin cells while stimulating natural collagen production.

Very good doctor, beautiful and very helpful, lots of experience 👍

I went and had some injections done in my face to reduce wrinkles. I am 61 years old. I was very pleased with the professional attitude and the care given to me as a patient. The results were absolutely amazing. Some people say I look like I’m in my 40s. Dr. Pacheco really did a great job. And it’s not the first time. She’s also done emergency surgery on my hand and removed moles, or other strange looking skin growths I have had in the past . She is a very caring giving doctor. She has changed many women’s lives with her surgeries and save lives. Do not hesitate to visit this fantastic plastic surgeon with a passion to help her patients. Definitely a five star all the way..

About Us
How much does laser skin resurfacing cost?

Your laser skin resurfacing cost will depend on the treatment type you get. In your consultation, Dr. Pacheco will listen to your skin problems and goals before reviewing the different types of laser resurfacing available treatments. After this, she can help you choose your treatment and discuss costs. Aurora Bella Plastic Surgery often runs treatment specials and packages, so ask for more information during your consultation.

What's the best type of resurfacing for me?

Dr. Pacheco can help you choose which resurfacing option fits your concerns and goals in your initial consultation. The best treatment for you will depend on the health of your skin, any skin issues, and the skin depth you want your treatment to reach. How long you are willing to give your recovery might also be an important consideration when you create a treatment plan. When unsure, it is better to select a milder treatment to see how you like your results and decide if you want something stronger for your second appointment.

How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?

Dr. Pacheco or a member of her staff will give you recommendations on how you can speed skin healing following your laser treatment. The number one rule is don't pick or peel flaking skin. This can cause long-term damage including scars. You need to skip all hair removal methods on the treated skin, which include waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. We can recommend an ointment to help soothe treated areas.
